Cute Snack Idea: A Snack Full of Love

Whip up this healthy snack for your little sweethearts

It’s so much fun decorating your kids’ food with lots of love. This snack is nutritious, really easy to make, and a hit with my kids. This is great to serve at home, or pack in their lunchbox (with a leakproof lid). Here’s how to make it at home.

What you’ll need:

  • Unsweetened plain applesauce
  • Vanilla yogurt
  • Red gel food colouring
  • Squeeze bottle


1. Put some applesauce and vanilla yogurt in some serving dishes.

2. In separate bowls, scoop a few spoonfuls of applesauce in one bowl, and a few spoonfuls of yogurt in another bowl.

3. Add a dab of red gel food colouring to each bowl and stir until you reach your desired shade of red.

4. Pour your red applesauce in your squeeze bottle, and squeeze a heart shape on the top of your applesauce. Repeat this process for the yogurt.

5. Serve to your kiddos and enjoy!

I love healthy snacks that are easy to make, and this is definitely one of those snacks. Just a tiny little touch of love and it makes all the difference.
